“Our amazing hometown is the inspiration for the hotel, and we are thrilled to open our doors soon to the community and visitors to the Upstate,” said John Deck, general manager of AC Hotel Greenville. “Greenville is on the rise as a beautiful destination for cuisine, arts and culture, and we feel AC Hotel Greenville will perfectly complement the city and also introduce something new and different to its Downtown scene.”
